    So i've finally managed to get a track to a standard I'm somewhat happy with, and I wanted some second opinions on tips for improvement.



    I did stick a Maximus preset on there to just bring up the volume, in case anyone was wondering.

    Thanks guys.

    the delayed sounding all over the place sound too me doesn't sound like it fits the track imo. snare needs to hit harder too, again imo the rest of it sounds good if you ask me. keep up on the project. :idea:

    I like the drums (snare could have a bit more bite) and the sub balance. The mids/highs on the bass sound a little washed out, a bit non-descript, not quite. In the processing you've either overdone it or underdone it, I'm not sure which cos I wasn't there.

    I think some good feedback is already given, the snare needs a lot more body and yeah, sometimes there 's a bit to much reverb, but good kinda minimal deep dnb track.

    Well I have a slight LFO on the release knob of the 'mid bass' volume envelope, so that's making it sound like that, I guess.

    Before the drop you filter out the Drums but the 1/8 notes highhats stay at the same level the whole time. To my mind if you put them out or something like that the drop will probably be more exciting.
